Great shot of movie cameraman in woods shooting birds at close range.
Describes insect pests. Birds are "nature's check against these hardened criminals."
Children building bird houses under direction of Audubon societies.
"Building and renting bird houses encourages children in the study of civics."
"A delegation from the schools of Portland, Oregon, organizing a colonization scheme for their home woods." Children seen in front of Multnomah Falls.
Photographed by William L. and Irene Finley of the National Association of Audubon Societies for the Protection of Wild Birds and Animals. Titled by Marguerite Gove.
Okay film about "songbirds" except it's not really all about songbirds (like the woodpecker definitely isn't), and features scenes of kids in the audibon society making treehouses, insect problems farmers face and how some birds help with it. There are some great shots of the birds though, looks like the cameraman built up a lot of trust.

Never seen woodpeckers other then solitary and the ones I've seen avoid people at all costs. I have also never seen chickadees so clustered together let alone on ones hand. I wonder how they did this.
Couldn't imagine boys these days constructing bird houses like the kids in this film do. Chiseling out logs and driving those nails. Perhaps they already have several years seniority at the local carpentry mill or box factory.
